Pivot Pins! (560 SEL)

Here is one for the pros:

I just went back into my 560 SEL's timing chain setup, in order to do the driver's side rails.

When I put in the new pins on the other side, I sis not have to pound them in with a screw and a hammer. They just slipped in, snugly, but no force needed. I figured they'd expand and become snug. Also, I figured the altenator mounting plate would keep them in place.

Now as I removed the valve cover on the passanger's side, I realized the top pin had worked itself out, and the rail was only held in place by the bottom pin!!!!


(Thank GOD I found this. This was a timebomb wainting to happen!)
